Is the 'Second Law of Thermodynamics' a fraud?
The so-called 'Second Law of Thermodynamics' states that the entropy of the universe tends to a maximum, that is, its degree of order can only degrade, not improve. Derived from this is the idea that we are inescapably approaching the 'heat death of the universe', when everything is run down and there is no free energy to sustain motion or life. Information is sought on any measurements or experiments which give evidence supporting the so-called law. Without such evidence, the law must be deemed invalid as a scientific law. The bid amount will also be paid for a sufficiently-detailed survey showing that no evidence (as opposed to theoretical inference) exists for the 'Second Law'. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_death_of_the_universe (ZBL#120).

This topic turned out to be more complex and unresolvable than expected. Ultimately any answer hinges on the exact definition of what the Second Law is or says, and there are widely different views on this.
Attached are some of the responses of people who have considered the issue.
